2019: Commitment

Hey y’all!

OMG in less than 24 hours we will be bring in 2019, where did the time go? Did I meet all of my goals? What were my goals? Did I travel enough? Did I make new friends? Did my business thrive? I don’t have the answers to these questions, because I don’t take inventory of my life that way, I honestly like to just live. What I do know, and DO have the answer to is that right now in the moment, sitting in the middle of my king sized bed, preparing to watch “Breaking In”, with a bouncing baby boy in my belly, just coming off of a phone call with one of my best friends , is that I am happy. I am content, in a good way, when it comes to the way that 2018 is coming to a close and I hope you guys are too.

The word for 2019 is commitment, and I just came up with that about two hours ago. Another non profit friend of mine (Janay of Activate Your Evolution) shared with me a video about commitment, and how its easy to like the idea of something without considering the work that’s needed when executing this idea, and that spoke to me. Little Girls Big Dreams was a DOPE idea to me, in 2017 so I moved forward with starting my first NPO without considering the hard work, dedication, time, and passion it took to push through with it. Having learned these things all of 2018, I am convinced that 2019 will be even better and I am committed to doing the work that it takes to get Little Girls Big Dreams wherever God intended it to go when he put it on my mind.

Thanks for rocking with me thus far, I’ve met some wonderful people who just want to genuinely help and I am proud to take you into the New Year with me.

God Bless

Be Present

Good evening dreamers!

Since I’ve started actively working on LGBD I have had my face in my phone, laptop, or the clouds, constantly. At any given moment I’m either searching for inspirational photos online, sending out emails, or daydreaming about what this can grow into. All of these are good things, this is my baby, my newborn baby, so it needs all of my attention, right? Every minute of everyday counts, so naturally I will do all that I can to make sure its beautiful.

This past weekend, however, I decided that I would be present. I would enjoy my friends and family, I would take a moment to be grateful, and not worry so much about LGBD and it was the one of the best things I’ve done since I started. I was able to laugh all night with friends, eat great food, and dance the night away without worrying about photo ops, or quotes, or color palettes, etc etc. I know that a lot of us become enthralled in our projects, creatives have this need to feel inspired, this need to always be doing something, but if we don’t take some time out to look at the blessings around us we may miss the very inspiration we are searching so diligently for.

Cultivating your dreams is a journey, I acknowledge that it takes hard work mixed with a few tears, but I also believe that when ordered by God, things seem to fall into place. The journey doesn’t seem as lonely when you constantly have a guide telling you where to go, and for some people this might not be God, you may attribute it to the universe or that little voice inside, either way sometimes we need to quiet our minds and just be led. Take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come thus far, so that you can appreciate the journey ahead.
